Fire Department Open House

The Town of Brookfield Fire Department hosted its annual Open House on October 6. The fire department’s open house is held each year during the month of October to bring recognition to National Fire Prevention Week. The weather cooperated to provide a beautiful fall day for the event. As has become an annual tradition, Flight for Life landed their new helicopter in front of the fire station before a crowd of onlookers.

Visitors to the open house had the opportunity to view a display of fire apparatus from the Town of Brookfield as well as surrounding communities. Department members were on hand to provide tours of the equipment and the firehouse, pass out information on fire and life safety, injury prevention, and emergency preparedness. The youngsters at this year’s Open House were treated with fire helmets, badges, other assorted hand-outs, and a giant inflatable fire truck slide. Refreshments of hot dogs, popcorn, and cotton candy made the day a big hit for all. Make sure you put it on your calendar for next year!
